The Benefits of Controlling Your HVAC Via Smartphone App

Smartphone HVAC control offers the best of both worlds: the ability to monitor and operate your home furnace and AC from any remote location. We live in a connected world, and the ability to stay linked to major HVAC household components is another benefit of today’s technology. This trend makes use of Wi-Fi thermostats in conjunction with a variety of smartphone apps that are now available from major HVAC manufacturers, as well as other independent developers. This technology enables the convenience, economy, and security of full monitoring and control of your indoor environment from anywhere you may be.

Available functions in apps for smartphone HVAC control may differ according to the specific make and model of your installed systems. However, a general overview includes typical options such as these:

  • Real-time monitoring and adjustment of indoor temperatures at home by remote control of the furnace and air conditioner from anywhere in the world.
  • Remotely setting low and high temperature limits to prevent excessive overheating or cooling.
  • Options to program temperature changes in advance, as well as make schedule changes from your phone.
  • Receive alerts about AC or furnace malfunctions, as well as reminders of scheduled maintenance, such as the need to change the system air filter.
  • View a recent history of heating or cooling usage that may have increased energy consumption, then make necessary thermostat adjustments and reduce costs.
  • Control and monitor ancillary HVAC units such as dehumidifiers, home air purifiers, etc.
  • Geofencing features in smartphones that can be applied to HVAC thermostats, such as automatically turning the AC or furnace off as you leave the house and then turning components back on when you’re nearing home.

Now celebrating 100 years of service to the residents of Terre Haute, the staff and technicians at Paitson Bros. are ready with advice and new technology, including smartphone HVAC products, that augment home comfort and convenience.
